Hemming and hawing over the perfect 'do for your holiday parties?
Stylist to the stars and many a well-heeled New Yorker, Eva Scrivo is the rare beauty expert who wields a hair color wand, cutting scissors and makeup brush – all with mastery.
So who better to drill about hot hair trends?
We were recently in her chair to get our locks chopped, so we pressed Scrivo to dish what the the fancy ladies of New York are planning for their holiday hair styles.
"I'm getting lots of requests to teach clients how to pin their hair back into feminine updos," says Scrivo, whose own locks are swept up into a casual knotted chignon, with loose pieces gently caressing her face.
"Mad Men has influenced our aesthetic with more elegant styles – it has rekindled the desire for ladylike beauty. Putting your hair up isn't just a way to mask a bad hair day now – it's a way to bring back that old world sense of glamour."
"Only the hair around your face has to look polished to pull off an updo with style – you need to take a moment to blow out those front sections smoothly so that they frame your face just right." advises Scrivo.
Good news for New York area readers: if you want to visit Scrivo's salon, call 212.677.7315 to inquire about details.
